Belle Book Bag

     I made this for my grandaughter. The bag came from Oriental Trading. The bag was prewashed in cold water and line dried.  I used the Disney's "Dreams Come True" cartridge. Using my Imagine machine and inkjet iron on fabric I printed and cut the layers. I also used the Cricut Craftroom. 
      I made sure I used a brand new blade. The settings I used were pressure 4, speed 3 and blade depth 4.Belle's name is cut at 2 inches and filled in with black. Belle is cut at 7 inches. I used the shadow feature for the bottom layer and filled it with black. These are the RGB codes I used:

Skin - 254 226 203 (Stampin Up Blush Blossom)
Hair and eyes - 121 71 32
Gloves and shouldere - 255 228 120
Bodice - 255 223 74
Lips 242 116 137

      Iron on each piece as you layer it. Follow the directions from your manufacturer. I used June Tailor Quick Fuse which I found at Joann's in the quilting area.
     After All layers are ironed down, use a small paint brush to apply Art Institute Fabric Adhesive to the gloves and shoulders. Sprinkle on Art Institute Jonquil ultra fine transparent glitter. Make sure all areas are covered. Using fingers, gently smash down glitter. Let sit for 5 minutes and then gently shake off excess glitter. Let dry 3-4 hour. Heat set by baking in an oven that has been preheated to 300 and then turned off. Place bag on a foil lined cookie sheet and bake for 30 minutes.
     Apply heat set rhinestones. Wash inside out in cold water and line dry

My Craft Room

This is my craft room. It is still a work in progress but it's functional.

I used my Everyday Cricut cartridge to decorate the wall.

The desk was black. I painted it white with green trim.
